With the beautiful weather we are having I just couldn't bring myself to heat up the kitchen at home or in the clubhouse for our cooking class this month. So we made a very easy NO BAKE cheesecake. I made one yesterday in a pie pan, and served that with a choice of cherry or blueberry pie filling. They got to try it while they watch it being made.
I showed them how easy it is, and instead of a pie plate made individual cheesecakes for them to take home.
All you need is 6 ingredients and I'm sure most of you have made this recipe time and again. I know I have.
Graham Cracker Crust
1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c. sugar
1 cube butter (melted)
Mix and press in pie pan, or individual containers
1 ~ 8 oz package of creamed cheese
1 ~ can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice (3 small or 2 large)
Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk and mix with electric mixer until well blended. Add lemon juice and mix on high until all is well blended.
Pour into crust and refrigerate over night. The individual ones for a couple hours.
Top with the your favorite topping, cherry, blueberry etc. The canned pie filling works very nicely and is easy!!
Part of teaching a cooking class is involving the students, so next month one of the ladies is going to share a special salad she makes. I think everyone enjoys the fellowship as much as the teaching, and for sure they love to sample what we make.
